Average Cyclops Review (based on 303 reviews)
Reviewed by telecranker from sierras on Saturday, October 11, 2014I had the 3 LED version. First night I used it, one of the plastic hat clips snapped off, then the battery door sprung off leaving me in the dark to put it back together. The door is now taped on to the body & the other clip is gone, too. But the switch still works & it still lights, even tho I've used it numerous times.

Reviewed by Camping Friend from Layton, Utah on Thursday, June 26, 2014I've been looking for a mini lantern to hang from the vestibule in my tent. I check out various mini lanterns when shopping at the various chain sporting goods and variety stores. I get discouraged because they are to bulky, cheaply made, or look like a play toy. Well I decided to purchase the Cyclops' Apollo LED lantern/flashlight from STP. I'll try and describe it: The lantern/flashlight is 4 inches tall and the diameter is about 1 inch and 3 eights or about as round as a 50 cent piece when collapsed. It extends another 2 inches in the lantern position. I agree with the previous reviews on the pros and cons concerning this lantern/flashlight. PRO: It is well built and machined precisely. CON: The hanging ring should be on the opposite end so that the light shines downward, and the switch would need to be installed on the side. When the switch is pressed it starts to flash, then pressed again is in the bright mode, and when pressed a third time it is in the dim mode. I like things simple and just need the lantern/flashlight to go on and off as I push the switch. I sometimes wonder if the engineers and designers know what it is like functioning in a tent while camping in the dark or dealing with acts of mother nature. Overall this is a good lantern/flashlight.
